New canoe/kayak race at Gordon
The first annual Go With the Flowage canoe race will be held May 22 on the Gordon-St Croix Flowage near Gordon. Race starts at 10 a.m. Course is 16 miles for racing classes and six miles for recreational classes.
Entry fee is $30 for tandem teams and $20 for solo entries.
Five race categories, plus untimed sightseeing class: Racing Tandem Canoe, Racing Solo Canoe, Racing Solo Kayak, Rec Tandem Canoe or Kayak, Rec Solo Canoe or Kayak, and untimed, informal sightseeing class.
